We are in the very pleasant situation to announce that we are
building a new 42 feet sailing boat, fully accessible for handicapped
This new sailing boat will be ready next April (2006).
This sailing boat can give to a handicapped person the advantage
to sail by him without any assistance. A wheelchair user shall
be able to get on board through a wide gangway; the steering wheel
will be accessible to be used by him.
He will also be able to have the total control of the sails and
will be able to make all the adjustments during the sailing. The
cabins shall be accessible through an electro-hydraulic ramp that
the wheelchair user will be able to use it by him.
The sailing boat shall have three (3) double accessible cabins
for the passengers and one (1) double cabin for the crew.
It will have a comfortable rest room with special equipment so
that it can be very convenient for a handicapped person.
This boat is being built with specifications to succeed high performances
and give the opportunity to people with a disability to experience
sailing with safety, without loosing the enjoyment and the pleasure
This boat shall be used like a teaching boat of sailing and also
shall participate in races and regattas with crew apparted from
people with disabilities, and can also be charted for cruises
Our new sailing boat is being built in Italy from "Sabaudia
Ettica" which is experts in building boats for handicapped
people. The boat whose photos are below is the little sister of
the boat we are building. Our company and the people from "Sabaudia
Ettica", all these years have gained a lot of experience
for the needs and the desires of disabled sailors. We are convinced
that our cooperation will open new horizons for sailing for all.
